Free Motion Mavericks - Week 150 - Quilting Again

Normal service has resumed.  Today was the day I finally started quilting again after a gap of nearly four months.  I have started a mini production line.  Yesterday I made four sandwiches for cradle quilts, and quilted the first one this morning.  It is good to get back into the swing of things, especially after such an enjoyable break.

Still no photos, though.  In theory I could take photos with my husband's old mobile phone, but I'm far too attached to my camera.  It has the advantage of only taking one photo at a time.  I press the magic button on a mobile phone and take at least fifteen.  Too much technology.

Here goes for Week 150.

The project that caught my eye in Week 149 was Yanicka's fractured image cat, which is quilted with the three feathers pattern that she has demonstrated on a video here. 
If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and have a closer look.

If you love free motion quilting, whether you are a beginner just taking the plunge, or you have reached the stage where you can do ostrich feathers with your eyes shut and still achieve perfect symmetry, then please link up.

Remember, FMQ is FMQ, whether your machine was made last week, or it is older than your granny.

Here are the very easy and slightly elastic rules:-

1.  Link up with any recent post, ideally from the last week but within the last month, which features a free motion quilting project, whether it is a work in progress or a finish.

2.  Link back to this post in your own post and/or grab the linky button for your blog's sidebar.
3.  Visit as many of the other participants as possible and say hello in the comments box.

4.  The link up will remain open for four days, from midnight to midnight GMT for the long weekend, Friday to Monday.

So far quilters from the USA, England, Wales, Australia, Canada, Germany, Holland, New Zealand, France, Macau, Russia, Ireland and Brazil have taken part.  The first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.
